Hi everyone,

We've been very busy here at Fantasy Raceways in Rochester, NY. Here's a new photo of the track, which has recently been rebraided and now has a state-of-the-art power supply and the LapMaster race management system

The old Automatic Race Director is still standing behind the banked turn.

 

After 40 years of service, she was retired and replaced by the LapMaster system. We have three monitors, the one large one on the wall above the back straight, one smaller one in front of the drivers station, and one at the race directors counter.

 

The power supply is equipped with a 50 farad capacitor and has high and low settings of 13.2 and 9.0 volts at the drivers hook-ups for different skill levels and classes.

Would be cool if the sound effect when the car goes over the counter could be made to sound like the pin ball style clackity clack.

 I think I can get you a good deal on that old lap counter if you're really interested.

I love the sound of those old lap counters.
